Is it possible for my entire neighborhood to annex into the Town?

Yes. If multiple property owners are interested in incorporating into the Town of Summerville, SC State Law Title 5, “Municipal Corporations,” offers three different methods for requesting annexation:

  • Petition of 100% of property owners
  • Petition of 75% of property owners having title to 75% of total assessed value of property in an area to be annexed
  • Petition of 25% of qualified electors in area to be annexed for an election
